Renowned Italian chef Matteo Bertoli recently launched a vegan saffron bar -- the Lingotto Di -Zafferano -- which acts as a substitute for caviar, pancetta, and foie gras. The seasoning is the perfect swap for garnish dishes, recipes, or to add a kick to your cocktail.
The plant-based product is made from Italian-grown saffron that has been finely ground with loose cocoa butter. This is then poured into a mold that's in the shape of a gold bar. The shape of the vegan saffron bar is ideal for versatile grating that can be small or large, thick or thin.
This new development is perfect for the growing portion of the global population that chooses to lead a plant-based lifestyle and allows them to enjoy their favorite meals in a cruelty-free and vegan way.
